The History of Sight Village

QAC Logo

Sight Village, now in its 23rd year, started with our flagship event in Birmingham.  Originally taking place in a couple of rooms at Queen Alexandra College, it quickly outgrew the campus and, after a couple of years, the event moved to a larger venue where it continues to be the largest event of its kind in the UK.

In 2009, at the request of the exhibitors, we held our first event in London, the following year we added Scotland to our calendar.  Our roadshow events now take place in five cities across the UK each year.

Sight Village continues to be the premier event for blind and partially sighted people, bringing together leading providers of products and services all under one roof.  It allows visitors the opportunity to compare products side by side.

We owe a particular message of appreciation to our heaimage of delegates at the sight villaged line sponsors, Sight and Sound Technology and Barclays and to our other sponsors,

Olympus and Guide Dogs. It is their support which enables us to maintain free entry for visitors

QAC is proud to be the organisers of Sight Village and we are delighted to be returning to Manchester for a third year and look forward to a busy day.
